So I made plans to go to the mountains, found a place that would allow me to bring Fred, found a cat sitter and...
Then it all hit the fan! Meetings planned by others, artwork accepted at a new gallery, volunteer hours need to be done, repairs picked up. Ugh! I mean I should be thankful I am so needed but really people!
Lessons learned: do not plan on anything, do not over-commit and most of all put yourself first! I wish I had the guts to tell everyone that I was already committed and could not help. I would feel guilty for backing on them but wait I am backing out on myself. Why? I matter and I should stand up for myself across the board.
Updated plans: still pretend I am on vacation and do stuff for me and take a day trip or two. I will complete my commitments and remember this for the future. Next time I will not back down!
